I’ve mentioned several times that I teach highland dance (which was the whole reason for doing the plaid/kilt cookies shown in my first post), and it’s become a source for a lot of baking requests and baking inspiration this year. I love bringing extra treats to my dancers at rehearsals, at exams, and at recital… Read More Choreography Costume Cookies
I’ll be covering two different Thanksgiving projects today! One of these projects was a cake and cupcake order, and the second was a batch of sugar cookies made just for fun (because I love decorating cookies, and I love seeing how my skills improve every time).

This is one of the difficulties with baking part time while also being a student – sometimes school just has to be the priority.

It’s been a while since my last post (thesis research is ramping up, so while I’m still baking, I’ve spent a little less time on it this month), so I thought I’d include two cakes. A two-for-one deal. These are both cakes I made in the last two weeks, and they represent my first attempts… Read More Fondant Covered Cakes
